    Why do you think the prince was cocky? Was it because he was sure he could hide from the Black plague? yes he was cocky to people because he did not get it the black plague.

    Well, this book is really, really, REALLY confusing if you don’t read EVERY SINGLE WORD. And, a lot of those words really don’t make sense all the time, so yeah. Pretty confusing, but if I was born back when Poe was alive, I bet I’d understand it because that’s the way they spoke.

    In the story ‘The Masque of the Red Death’, I was literally thinking about The Christmas Carol when the Ghost of Christmas Future came. The description of the Red Death guy made me think of him and all his…creepiness.

    Prince Prospero deserved what he got! Stupid jerk… If you’re SO rich that you can have a bunker with 7 chambers-all different colors-and be able to have enough food down there to feed all your friends, then why don’t you go hire some really smart scientist to figure out a freaking cure for the Red Death? Honestly, dude. Don’t make me kick you. It’s aggravating.

    Overall, I really liked this book. Not loved, but liked very well. Poe’s descriptions of the surroundings and characters are very well written and show that not every author writes about the angst of being a teenager. Or a vampire. But, I’m sure there is a story Poe has written about vampires.

    Actually, I’m pretty sure that he didn’t write any about vampires. I’m not 100% sure, but that is definitely something you could look into so you’d know!! :)
